California: Legislature Votes to Prohibit Firearms Sales to Adults Under 21

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- On Wednesday, August 29,Senate Bill 1100 passed its final hurdle in the Legislature and is now heading to Governor Brown’s desk for his consideration. SB 1100, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would raise the minimum age to purchase a long gun from 18 years old to 21 years old, effectively denying young adults their ability to exercise their constitutional rights.

Instead of focusing on the criminal misuse of firearms, the California Legislature continues to focus their attention on restricting the rights of law-abiding Californians.

Please use our TAKE ACTION button below to respectfully urge Governor Brown to VETO SB 1100.

Take Action Button

The following bills are still eligible for a vote in the Assembly and Senate. Please use the TAKE ACTION button above to urge your state Assembly Member and Senator to OPPOSE the following bills.

Bills eligible for a vote in the Assembly:

Senate Bill 1487, sponsored by Senator Henry Stern (D-27), would prohibit the possession of certain African species of wildlife. The true goal of the bill is to ensure that a lawful U.S. hunter is not allowed to bring home a hunting trophy—even though the animal was legally taken and the hunter has the approval of the U.S. Federal Government.

Bills eligible for a vote in the Senate:

Senate Bill 221, sponsored by Senator Scott Wiener (D-11), would prohibit the sale of firearms and ammunition at the Cow Palace located in District 1-A on and after January 1, 2020. SB 221 passed the Senate Public Safety Committee on August 29 and is eligible for a vote on the Senate floor.

Senate Bill 1177, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would prohibit a person from making more than one application to purchase and the dealer delivery of any type of firearm within any 30-day period. SB 1177 passed the Senate Public Safety Committee on August 29 and is eligible for a vote on the Senate floor.

Bills that have passed the legislature and are awaiting Governor Brown’s consideration:

Senate Bill 1100, sponsored by Senator Anthony Portantino (D-25), would raise the minimum age to purchase a long gun from 18 years old to 21 years old.

Assembly Bill 2103, sponsored by Assembly Member Todd Gloria (D-78), would add certain requirements in addition to the already mandated training courses for a citizen to obtain a concealed carry license. Currently, concealed carry permit holders are already required to receive up to 16 hours training prior to receiving a permit and at least four hours of additional training every two years prior to renewal.

Assembly Bill 2888, sponsored by Assembly Member Phillip Ting (D-19), would expand the list of those eligible to file gun violence restraining orders (GVRO) beyond the currently authorized reporters which include immediate family and law enforcement. The new list is expanded to employers, coworkers and employees of a secondary or postsecondary school that the person has attended in the last 6 months. GVRO’s can remove a person’s right without due process and not because of a criminal conviction or mental adjudication, but based on third party allegations.

Assembly Bill 2151, sponsored by Assembly Member Adam Gray (D-21), would help make hunting more affordable for youths by reducing the cost of certain big game tags for youth hunters.

AB 2888 sounds like a good one, an angry coworker or boss can petition to have your gun rights stripped! What could possibly go wrong there?

I have a hard time on how states can override federal law. The violate federal law you can be arrested. When it is a state all federal assistance should be cut off.

The entire firearms industry should leave Kalifornia. All manufacturers from guns to accessories,training centers, shooting events, dealers, the whole 9 yards. No firearms in the state not already owned by someone. As far as I’m concerned the entire shooting industry can move to Texas. We do have some Libertard enclaves here but so far we haven’t allowed to mess with our deep pervasive gun culture. As to Kalifornia, when they run the wall in that direction they can run it up the east border of Kalifornia and over the north border and totally shut them off.

I see the “let’s blame everything on Californians” crowd is still huffing and puffing. Here we go again. A few names for you; Charles Schumer, Al Franken, Elizabeth Warren, Jeff Flake (an appropriate name in his case), Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Bob Corker, Lindsey Graham. I could go on for a long time. So, is there some evil conspiracy of Californians sneaking into your states to vote these leftists and RINO’s into office over and over again? Not that I’ve heard. How’s the weather in Austin? Is that city populated entirely, or even mostly, by California transplants? Nope. Same goes… Read more »

@ John Dunlap, I think you have something there. It is true there are liberals in every state and they are pulling the same crap wherever they decide to purch. They seems to be more densely populated in Cali., N.Y., dirty old N.J. and useless Maryland. One could hope the all catch the same incurable disease and all expire at the same time, or open season would be a good deal with no bag limit.

Thank you John. Not everyone in California is a gun grabber. I was conceived and raised in the true Northern California. If you look at a map Sacramento and San Fransisco are in the central third of the state but they dominate the rural counties to the north with their dense population base. The movement to create the State of Jefferson began before WWII and was interrupted by the war. This movement is a result of rural resentment of metropolitan political domination. Southern Oregon also has a State of Jefferson movement for the same reason. Our government is dominated by… Read more »

The idiots in Commifornia started with the automotive industry years ago, how has that worked out for the rest of the US? They just keep on going with all of their nonsense and the rest of the politicians just keep going with the flow to appease those idiots, the best that could happen would be a giant earthquake and it would slid into the Pacific Ocean, By-By!!!!!!!!

I was a beneficiary of the drop in voting age. I wasn’t sure about it then or now. The liberals wanted to pass it so they would have all those young collage students to vote against the war. Now when things don’t seem to be going their way they want to change their mind and take rights away from law abiding young people. It doesn’t work that way. You can’t just give and take rights when it feels good to you.

I have to agree with Ron, if you’re not old enough to own a gun, then you’re not old enough to enter into the service. California gets goofier every day.

In Maine, Gov Lepage held up signing constitutional carry until the bill was amended to allow 18 and older in the military for just that reason.

Do the democrats in California suffer from inbreeding? Their lack of any ability to reason appears to be a part of their DNA. We are seeing am influx of californians moving to Texas. I can only hope they leave their liberal political views behind. And, when will the voters in California wake up? Maybe never if current history is an indicator.

Not a chance they will change their views. They have destroyed California so badly that they relocate, but they continue doing what destroyed the state. That is the definition of Insanity “Doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting a different outcome.” They are doing it here in Oregon too. Once a libtard…always a libtard.

The United State congress should give California back to Mexico.

I guess this will mean you should be 21 to join the service. After all, how can you trust a guy with ‘any’ weapon if they are under age? Scary. (Cal. should slide into the Pacific)
